“We wanted to create something truly romantic and wild with a summery festival feel. Wild flowers were foraged locally, our table set up was an eclectic mix of vintage finds that we collectively pieced together from our own belongings – everything evolved really organically as we didn’t want anything too “done”.

Lets start by saying this blog post is not cool.

In fact, if it were a person at a house party, it would be the person who is left standing in the kitchen, clutching its glass of wine and awkwardly trying to make conversation with anyone who passes by.

Much cooler blog posts, such as the themed shoots and real weddings wander past with a wry smile. In short it is the geek.

However, like in many a Hollywood teen movie, the geek is sometimes the real hero. This type of blog post is in fact possibly one of the more important ones you will read during your wedding planning.

In the age where the wedding album is not as popular and many couples tend to go for digital only packages, these files are super important, and should be treated as such.

Spring wedding ideas in blue and gold with Corette Faux Photography (22)

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a lovely week and – dare I say – looking forward to a fabulous weekend! Is it too early?! {Can you believe it’ll be July on Saturday?} Anyway – let’s focus our hearts on today because I have the loveliest florals from a sublime styled shoot at Morden Hall with Corette Faux Photography to show you.

The colour palette of soft blues and pops of gold and burgundy is fabulous; the styling perfectly elegant for a modern celebration in a historic stately home. Brush pen calligraphy adds a prettily carefree spirit to the day, and I absolutely adore the second bouquet of lilacs – a pretty alternative for a more boho wedding look.

“The design took inspiration from the venue’s classic beauty, the pale blue walls, and the modern furniture. With a colour palette of gold and blue with touches of burgundy and coral, we wanted to keep it simple, yet elegant and stylish at the same time.

How is your Monday going? Would you like to see something really beautiful? As those of you who follow my calligraphy instagram will know, my favourite place is outside. The more breathtaking the location, the happier I am – and so today’s elopement shoot has my heart.

“There are some places I’ve photographed on this lovely planet that I simply want to keep secret.  Places off the beaten track, away from the hustle of daily life, jaw droppingly beautiful and yet a comparatively short stone’s throw from where I live.

I give you the Lofoten Islands in Arctic Norway.

A string of mountainous islands connected by undersea tunnels and winding bridges, not only is it a road-tripper’s paradise, it also played host to Håvard and Stine’s stunning elopement that I got to photograph recently.

“When I first saw this beautiful wedding dress by Watters at Agape Bridal Boutique, I was completely smitten! The nude colour tone and the tulle ruffles – it was so feminine and different!

“We just had to create a shoot based entirely around this dress not only for our own creative fun but also to showcase it!

“The English Countryside setting was perfect with the wild buttercups and luscious tall grass and this gave us the idea of a bouquet which looked like wild flowers that had been handpicked.

We then had the idea of scattering some of the pink lisianthus blooms along the skirt of the dress.

Beautiul styling ideas and luxe marquee florals, image credit Suzy Mitchell Photography (15)

If you love summer flowers and dream of an opulent, gloriously fragrant summer bouquet – then today’s wedding is going to blow your mind! The flowers are exquisite – and then some. Beautiful bride Hannah is breathtaking in full lace sleeves and a glorious Caroline Castigliano gown while her rather gorgeous groom Will is every bit the country gentleman.

Their marquee wedding has the loveliest styling ideas with hanging floral decoration, huge centrepieces full of colour and even blossom trees to create the country garden look. The table plan is my fave with prettily folded cards set amongst yet more florals catching prettily in the breeze.

All of the flowers were styled by lovely Susie Hart of Hart Company, who brought together peonies, hydrangeas, roses and cornflowers to create the pretty bouquets for Hannah and her bridesmaids. Hydrangeas were key in the hanging chandeliers, which incorporated foliage and tender ferns for a looser shape and wonderful texture.

Copper and succulents for a Refinery wedding with Amanda Karen Photography Essex (18)

Our pages are so often filled with soft, feminine styling ideas and fabulous floral-filled stately home weddings. My heart is equally drawn to urban celebrations with a quirky or chic aesthetic, and today’s shoot from lovely Amanda Karen Photography combines the best of both worlds with a fabulous floral curtain and sleek, copper styling touches.

The Refinery by Drake and Morgan is such a brilliant venue: in Regent’s Place, central London, and with a cool and urban interior, it works perfectly for this industrial luxe wedding style, brought together by Carmela weddings.

Copper is still such a major trend, and the perfect complement to soften its shine is succulents. The greenery in the tablescapes is perfect for a wedding all year round, and I adore the little details as much as the breathtaking curtain of foliage. Striking geometric shapes in the cake and stationery add to the look.

Our bride wears a stunning dress by Truvelle from Heart Aflutter Bridal. The sparkle and sensuous shape of the dress are so incredibly beautiful – the flowing skirt is graceful and perfect for a city chic wedding celebration.

Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

Hello, beautiful. I have something so special to share with you today – wedding gowns with a unique and intricate style you won’t have seen anywhere else. The story behind them is wonderful: designer Reuma Zohar‘s business started with a gallery of antique and vintage wedding dresses – over the years inspiring her very own collections. They’re the most enchanting combination of luxe, antique styling with relaxed silhouettes and exquisite fabrics – their look is as beautifully boho as it is regal and vintage.

Reuma & Yoel“, a unique wedding dress brand, is coming to London. Reuma Zohar, the designer behind the brand, has established an original and distinct style. Reuma creates her designs with custom handcrafted, intricate artwork of mixed lace techniques.

Her wedding dresses are refined, classic and gentle, but at the same time they are royal, prestigious and remarkably unique, which makes most of them one-of-a-kind, real works of art. Her wedding dresses have appeared in leading fashion magazines, editorials and covers and worn by fashion forward brides and celebrities.
